How often do you see a RB-17 nowadays? That should answer your question. 

I have too many bad memories with tryhards spamming the RB-17 to ever spend a dime on one. 

 

Here are the Top 3 Bombers for the Top 10 players in damage to ground targets all time in the HOF.

EF-131 = 8 

RB-17 = 7 

Ju-187 = 6 

B-32 = 4 

Su-10 = 2

Blenheim = 1

Do 217 = 1

Ju 88A = 1

 

Notice a trend?

The EF-131 would be 9/10 ALL TIME but on one account it's 4th place.  

Before high tier bombers the RB-17 was King but now it's the EF-131.

I missed the point. I already bought it, but I read this post 3X and still don't get it.

 

I guess if you explain it to me like I am 5 years old, I might understand. No offense, I am just missing the point or joke or whatnot.

I usually do well in a B-29C but tonight I got well spanked by a guy in an RB-17.  I will repeat myself.  A well flown EB-17 will outshine a well flown B-29C almost always due to speed and reload speed.

Yeah, it's not very clear. 

I looked up the Top 10 players all time in "Damage to Ground Targets" in the HOF rankings. 

I noted the Top 3 most played bombers on each of those accounts to see what they prefer. 

In 8 (almost 9) of the Top 10 players, the Ef-131 was one of their Top 3 Bombers played...etc.

Can I ask how you arrived at this data?  I checked my profile and my EF-131 is #15 on my most flown list, not even in the top 10.

 

I must be misunderstanding something because my RB-17 is #2 surpassed only by my Blenny.

 

Maybe I didn't qualify for the count?

Then you are probably one of the outliers as far as the EF-131 is concerned. In other words, out of the top 10 players in damage to ground targets, 8 of those players played the EF-131 as one of their most played planes. So, two players did not play the EF-131 as one of their top 3 planes (so you would be one of the 2 that does not have the EF-131 as one of their top 3 bombers played). So out of those top 10 players, 8 out of 10 or 80% have the EF-131 as one of their 3 most played bombers.

 

Hope that helps, took me awhile, but then I think I got it. 

 

You are probably the lone Blenny player as one of your top 3 most played.
